Fanning Ambition, Fulfilling Dreams

While ploughing fields in a small village, Kailash never imagined his dream of driving an automobile in a big city will ever come true.

From a very young age, like most men in my village, I had started raising cattle. As I grew up and started a family, managing home became difficult as there was no regular source of income. I could never attend school as I had to look after the cattle I tended to. I always had a dream of someday driving an automobile, but for a simple village person like me, expecting this dream to become a reality was impossible.

Then Vedanta came recruiting and I was selected for the project displaced programme. The company understood my dream and helped translate it into reality. I was trained in motor driving and was also provided behavioural training. I was then entrusted with the job of shuttling employees from one part of the plant to another.

For me, the idea of being independent, being able to earn for myself, is a dream come true. I never thought that in this life I will ever be able to have a job which would ensure a steady income for me. Today it is a reality and I know that my future and that of my family's is completely secure.

For Kailash, it's the little things that are making a big difference. He has a job that he is happy and grateful to carry out.  He realises the importance of being on time for duty, wearing a neat uniform and using proper safety equipment. And he's confident that his job will allow him to give his 3-month old baby the future she deserves.
